Warm winter wedding flowers

Monday, February 10th, 2014

If you’re having a winter wedding in January or February this doesn’t mean you have to go with a typically wintery white colour scheme for your wedding flowers. This London bride who got married last January chose a gorgeous combination of warm, burnt-orange coffee break roses for her bridal bouquet, combined with paler peaches and creams along with splashes of dusty grey amnesia and touches of pearls to create a cosy, vintage feel.

Roses are a firm favourite for romantic wedding flowers and for creating soft, feminine, country garden and vintage style wedding bouquets. Along with peonies, they are one of the most frequently requested wedding flowers at London florist Todich Floral Design, and it’s not difficult to see why. Not only do they come in a huge variety of colours and shapes, they are very versatile and work well with most other flowers too. From wild looking garden roses and delicate spray varieties in sweet pastel hues, to bright oranges, reds and pinks, and the classic white avalanche, roses are perfect for a variety of wedding flower styles and colour schemes.

We love how the bright orange of the coffee break roses in this bride’s bouquet was complemented and toned down with the gentler peaches and creams and how the dusty amnesia added a nostalgic vibe. A delicate string of pearls was added and trailed around for a touch of elegance and to create a vintage style.

The wedding buttonholes and corsages complemented the bridal bouquet by picking up the hints of peach and pearl decorations, with ladies’ corsages featuring a pearl covered stem and mens buttonholes, an elegant pearl pin.

Wedding reception flowers were kept simple and sophisticated, with posies of perfectly domed hand-tied roses set in classic shaped fishbowl and glass cube vases.

These were in keeping with bride’s dress and overall theme for the day which was very feminine and classically chic.

Our Autumn Flower Dress – London Fashion Week

Monday, October 14th, 2013

The London florist Todich Floral Design  has recently had the pleasure of designing a magnificent window display for a French Brasserie based in Central London.  Inspired by the autumn season and London Fashion week, the team worked together to create a wondrous display that combined fresh flowers in London with fabrics, foliage and jewellery.

IMG_7264_resizeWe are an event florist in London who regularly designs bespoke flower displays for the window of Brassiere Chavot. Once a month our talented team come up with ideas by creating large mood boards with sketches, flowers  from London and fabric s samples as part of a detailed design process.

We base a lot of our ideas on seasonality, and always use the freshest plants and herbs available. To make us stand out from the crowd we also add antique furnishings and props to enhance the look of the window.  Our spring display included pretty blossoms planted in rustic wicker baskets and our summer display contained sunflowers which were placed in pre-war suitcases. Our florists always aim to impress our clients, their diners and passers-by.

Autumn is a stunning time of year as it casts the UK into a beautiful amber hue. The leaves on the trees change colour into a mix of spicy red burnt orange, natural greens and browns, this month our floristry team wanted to create a flower window display based on the colourful tones of the autumn season.

Influenced by London fashion week, our head designer Laura Fisher managed to source an antique French mannequin that fitted perfectly for the display. The mannequin was set to be dressed with floor length autumnal attire which would be made entirely with event flowers and foliage.

IMG_7232_resizeFirstly, the dress was shaped with chicken wire that was tied around the waist of the mannequin; when secured tightly we then carefully weaved English moss around the wire frame. The London flower dress was made up with preserved oak leaves, dried hydrangea heads, delicate berries and Vanda orchids which were in a beautiful blend of autumnal shades.

The mannequin stood at the centre of the window on a circular bed of moss. The figure was surrounded by conifer trees and rustic wooden crates which was loved by the owner of the restaurant.

We also teamed up with London jewellers Tateossian, who donated a bespoke necklace which sat around the neck of the mannequin.

We are thrilled that our client loves our fashion inspired window display, and look forward to future designs for the upcoming winter season.

A Rustic French Garden Display – London

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

The design team at Todich Floral Design have been very busy and there are lots of exciting things happening.  We continue to work with the new French restaurant; we have just delivered the latest installation.  We decided to use very white props this time to create a ‘rustic French garden’.    The design included rustic old wooden planters filled with beautiful herbs and hellebores & small terracotta pots with herbs with worked really well with the white.  The design was based around a very old rustic white table which was a real focal point of the design and could be seen from street level.  The chef loved the design and whilst installing the design, we received a lot of attention from passers-by!

We have just won a new client, an Italian brasserie styled restaurant and cocktail bar in Chelsea.  We are very excited about working with another new restaurant opening and look forward to creating interesting and quirky designs for them.  The style of the downstairs brasserie is very natural and has piles of logs dotted around the restaurant which gives a warm and inviting feeling.  Our designer, discussed with the client the different design ideas;  we decided to have a very natural and hedgerow effect for the downstairs vase design, which would include seasonal flowers and twisted willow, the design would be very loose and have a natural effect.  The upstairs cocktail bar has a more elegant and sophisticated feel, so we decided to have an elegant simple design which for example could just be elegant white calla lilies in a beautiful vase.

The team are now busy with lots of weddings and we are receiving fantastic feedback from our brides, which always makes us so happy!  See our latest wedding blog for more details x

Todich Floral Design Creates Beautiful Rustic Window Displays

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Create Rustic French Designs: That was the brief from a client for a new restaurant opening in Mayfair, to bring ‘green’ into the restaurant.   The Chef heading up the French Brassiere, originated from France and his whole ethos from the cuisine to the interior design of the restaurant, had to reflect this.

The restaurant had just installed beautiful rustic planters which framed the outside of the restaurant.  This was filled with established olive trees and lush green herbs and created huge impact.  It was clear from the outset that a seasonal flower design would not work and would not give the required effect.   After much discussion and site visits, the Head Designer, Laura Fisher discussed with the client how we could use old galvanised containers and fill then with beautiful seasonal herbs and flowers.  This would bring the ‘outside in’ to the restaurant and continue the rustic theme throughout the Brassiere; it was a way of bringing the green, from the outside planters into the restaurant to create a fresh and rustic feel.

The team love searching for old pieces to work with and after much searching the team found some beautiful containers which included a vintage bath and watering can.  We felt it was very important to use vintage items to give the installation an ‘aged worn effect’.  At Todich design we have a range of props which we are happy to hire to our clients to work with their floral designs.

The design team then worked with the Head Florist to ensure we created the correct look; we decided on seasonal herbs and plants which would be potted in the various aged items.  We used beautiful Hellabores for the old bath and finished the design with moss, the contrast of the white flowers up against the grey galvanised pot made the simple design striking and effective

The rustic ‘Tea Tree’ plants were planted in a selection of smaller containers and these were chosen because they have a very delicate white flower with thick foliage.

The design was installed in the window of the restaurant and this worked so well with the green from the outside planters.  From the top of the restaurant you can sit and look through and see the beautiful greens of the installation and the planters creating a feeling of ‘rustic’ France.  The theme was continued, by placing a number of smaller containers on high shelves which sit in the centre of the restaurant.

 

The design team will continue to work with the client, to ensure the installation is changed to fit with the seasons and events held within the restaurant.  The client was very happy with the installation and the designs fitted perfectly with the rustic ‘French’ style.

If you would like us to provide flowers for yourself for an upcoming event then please do not hesitate to get in touch, we would be happy to book a free consultation with you and talk you through any ideas that you have in mind.
